Curried Tofu and Avocado Dip with Rosemary Pita Chips

Top Chef Lee Anne Wong's recipe was a great hit at the party I attended last night. I got it from the latest issue of Food and Wine. This was a healthy AND yummy party dish. It includes several SuperFoods: tomatoes, soy, avocado, garlic, olive oil and yogurt.

4 whole wheat pitas, split
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped rosemary
7 ounces soft or silken tofu, drained
1 Hass avocado—peeled, pitted and coarsely chopped
1/4 cup low-fat sour cream
1/4 cup Greek-style, fat-free yogurt
1 teaspoon finely grated lime zest
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 garlic clove
1 1/2 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon curry powder
2 tablespoons chopped mint
Freshly ground pepper
Grape tomatoes, cucumber slices and radishes for serving

Preheat the oven to 325°. Stack the pita halves and cut them into 6 wedges; transfer to a bowl and add the olive oil and rosemary. Season with salt and toss. Spread the pita wedges on a baking sheet in a single layer and bake until crisp, about 25 minutes. Let cool.

Meanwhile, in a food processor, puree the tofu, avocado, sour cream, yogurt, lime zest, lime juice, garlic, honey, curry powder and mint until smooth. Season the dip with salt and pepper and refrigerate until chilled. Serve the dip with the pita chips, tomatoes, cucumbers and radishes.
